how do i "normalise" - (Nov/11/2008 )

Hi there,

I have a question in a past exam which ass me to calculate power (normalised with respect to Po and Vmax) as a function of Vrel..

so a table has been with Vrel: 0.0 0.2 0.4 0.6 0.8 1.0
Power: (to be filled out for 0.0-1.0)

so just wondering what is the calculation for what i have to figure out: also can someone please explain what normalise means exactly?...asap pleeeeeeeeeeease:D exam tomorrow and im worried as..soo hard sad.gif

thanks in advance,


I have usually seen data normalized to account for variation seen from day to day or from run to run. To do this take the data that is the reference and determine one point that you will use to normalize all the data in the other experiment or test. Let's say it is the midpoint and it is 5 and in the other (non-reference test it is 4). Multiply the data (all the data) in the non-reference experiment by 1.25 and thus the data is normalized to the reference. They can now be directly compared.
